I hope you’re not all “Christmassed out”- Guest Contributors!
I hope you’re not all “Christmassed out” because I have a few more Christmassy things to share with you. Yesterday I finally finished packing up my Christmas tree and got it out of the house for another 11 months. I have packed away the Chrissy cards….but before boxing everything away I snapped a few photos of some handmade cards that I received at Christmas time.
The first card was made by Liisa- It was the first handmade card to hit my letterbox and I was so chuffed that she had gone to so much trouble…. Liisa has used the Christmas stamp from the “Cute and Curly” Stamp set punch and the matching curly label punch. I think the Riding hood red striped grosgrain ribbon really finishes the card off- don’t you agree?
The second card was made by one of my best customers (and she also happens to be my sister 🙂 ) Linda has used the “Season of Joy Stamp” set and a selection of some of my favourite prints from the “Holiday Treasures” and “Ski Slope” Designer series paper packs. I love layered cards- and think she has done a wonderful job!
The third card was made by Gail. I just love the use of the “Snow Swirled” stamp set to create these adorable baubles. Gail created a trim with the Eyelet border punch and each ‘bauble’ was punched out using the scallop circle punch.
Gail also made this adorable box filled with little Santa chocolates and a lovely Christmas decoration. This was a little gift that Gail had made for a little present exchange game at Playgroup. The game involved making the choice between selecting a pressie from under the tree OR being able to “steal” a pressie from anyone else who had already made a selection. Lucky ol’ me was last to have a turn so I was able to select any present I liked. I am sure you will agree that it was worth “Stooping to stealing” just to be able to bring this home with me!
I’m sure you will agree that I am very lucky to be surrounded by such creative people!
With the Summer holidays bringing a change of pace to our little household I managed to find some time for some scrapbooking. I have snapped a few photos to share with you…so please be sure to come back tomorrow.
